This year marks the 70th anniversary of the famous Dambusters' raid which is regarded as one of the one of the world's most daring bombing raids.
Admission to the event is free; however tickets must be booked in advance.
Speaker and aviation historian, Howard Heeley, who has written the guide, said: "I was delighted to be asked by East Lindsey District Council to undertake the work to research and compile an aviation heritage guide."
"Whilst visiting the various sites to take photographs and check details I was really struck by the sense of history and emotion that still connects the sites, with the personnel that served there; and in some cases that still serve there.
"Hopefully the new guide will encourage people to visit these locations for themselves."
